Be a social butterfly...

It’s finally time to get the house ready for Spring and most importantly of all, for Easter.  I love this time of year and I’ll take any opportunity to decorate! This little Easter decorations are inexpensive and easy to make and are more than a little bit addictive!  You can use fabric scraps, which I love as I hate waste and either hang with a little string or ribbon or pile into a bowl to create a lovely Easter centrepiece.

You Will Need:

Polystyrene eggs (available from  most craft shops

Pen

Sharp knife

Blunt knife or lolly stick

Scraps of fabric

Ribbon or String

Method:

  • Mark out two lines with a pale coloured pen, dividing the egg into four.
  • Score out the lines with a sharp knife, up to 1cm deep
  • Cut your fabric into a teardrop shape that will more than cover a quarter of the egg.  It’s best to cut too large a piece than too small as you can always trim the piece down.
  • Push the edges of the teardrop into the scored line with a blunt knife or lolly stick and trim any excess.

**TOP TIP** Fit one piece and then remove and use as a loose template.

  • If you’re struggling to get your fabric to stay in place, use a little glue around the edges.
  • Either use the eggs as they are as a beautiful decoration in a bowl or add ribbon or string to hang.

    These are so amazing I love seasonal gifts and keepsakes that won’t just be forgotten about, eaten and thrown away 🙂
